Rural roads are often
unpaved, diminishing your tire grip and overall traction.
These roads often lack road signs and markers that are all
over the place in the city. Sometimes, this makes it hard
to foresee intersections, curves, and dead ends.
Trees and tall agricultural
plants, like corn or wheat, make rural roads even more treacherous
because they block the driver’s view of intersections,
road markers, and especially railroad crossings.
